Can you use Birth Control with Acne Meds?

Recommended Posts

My Gyno seems to think my hormone levels are off so she put me on ortho try cyclen. I am currently taking erythromycin, tazorac, and cleocin T. Has anyone used these drugs w/ BC or do you know whether it can be done. Also, if you have had hormonal acne, has ortho helped?

The answer is yes, they can be used together and often derms. will tell you to see a doctor about birth control.

The only thing is if you take oral antibiotics, it is suggested to use a backup form of birth control because there is anecdotal evidence of the antibiotics making the bc less effective.
